CASPER, Wyo — June 30 is last day to submit outstanding shots of wildlife for the Wyoming Wildlife Calendar Photo Contest. Winning images will be featured in the 2021 calendar, released as the November 2020 issue of Wyoming Wildlife magazine.

“The calendar is one of the most popular issues of Wyoming Wildlife,” said Tracie Binkerd, the magazine’s editor. “Photographers will have the chance to have their photos displayed in the homes of thousands of subscribers and win some great prizes.”

In addition to a feature in the calendar, photographers have a chance to win a $100 prize for a photo selected for the calendar, with an additional $50 for cover selection, and a 12-by-18 inch matte print from Artizen Photo Printing in Cheyenne.

All photos must be of wildlife and taken in Wyoming. The maximum number of entries per person is 10. The magazine encourages everyone to practice ethical photography, which means keeping your distance and respecting the animal and its habitat.

It is important for photographers to remember the winning images will be printed in a horizontal orientation, and they must be able to be cropped to fit size requirements. Photographers also are encouraged to submit photos representing a variety of seasons.

A full list of rules is available on the Wyoming Wildlife website and entries will be accepted online until midnight June 30.
